Researching, writing, publishing stories, and building community around hardware technology in Africa involves a great deal of effort and I do this as an individual. As such, I appreciate your support to continue this. There are two ways to support Hardware Things: by subscribing to a membership or sending one-time support.

Individual sponsors with a membership get four perks:

  • their name acknowledged below on this page,

  • they receive the yearly zine delivered by post, and

  • they join the Discord server where we hold monthly calls with engineers across the continent.

Corporate sponsors get five perks:

  • their logo and company name linked on this page,

  • they receive 5 copies of the yearly zine,

  • they can add up to 5 employees (or people of their choice) to the Discord server,

  • once a quarter, they can include sponsored content in the newsletter; this could be a discount for their product for a limited time or an invitation to an event, and

  • once a year, we’ll produce a sponsored feature article focusing on their product, customers, or clients published on hardwarethings.org.
